Hello, my name is Rich. I am licensed and insured as well as nationally certified by Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. I truly care about the art of nurturing, and my clientsí overall well-being. I specialize in Sports Massage, Accident and Injury Recovery, and Myofascial Release. I also work a lot with dancers, musicians, and athletes.
Having graduated with a 4.0 from Atlanta School of Massage, I am proficient in multiple modalities from around the world. I have a firm foundation in Anatomy, Physiology and Kinesiology. I understand the pathologies that lead to injuries and help to provide quick results. An integrative practitioner, I rely on knowledge and experience to customize the session for each individual client. My ultimate goal is to bring grounded and client-centered energy to restore, rebalance and get you back to doing what you do best.
My journey in bodywork led me to become CPR certified. I run a successful private practice in Atlanta and I encourage clients to be active participants in their own healing process through session feedback, postural awareness, and self-care techniques. When away from the massage table, I teach various bodywork related classes and volunteer for massage events in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
Since every moment of stress is reflected somewhere in the body, it is necessary that we all maintain a healthy connection between mind, body, and spirit. Whether needing liberation from an old injury or wanting relief from everyday life, you can find either here. If you want a discreet, professional, and healing experience, please let Dr. Dot know that you want to book with Rich.
Thanks for your time and consideration, Namaste.
“ Rich was fantastic. He asked me several questions before the massage to ensure that he fully understood my concerns. He had a great technique and positive energy. He seemed genuinely concerned with my well-being and aftercare. When he arrived, I had a splitting headache and blurred vision. I am feeling much better now. Thank you.
